Yesterday, we woke up to a few inches of snow; schools were cancelled all over the area, and by 9 a.m. the neighborhood was filled with the screams of joyous kids. Jack got a set of sleds for Christmas, and has been eager to try them out. We put Sam down for a nap and headed outside to a small hill in our neighbor's yard. It didn't take long for all the neighbor kids to gather for some sledding fun.

The scooter he told three different Santas about--by far the most anticipated Christmas gift--has lived up to its billing. Jack is extremely adept and agile when it comes to controlling this little vehicle. As requested by Grandma, here is a video of him scootin' along.

We took Friday morning to travel (by light rail) uptown to Discovery Place. Thanks to everyone who gave the boys cash for Christmas, we were able to purchase a 29-month membership to Discovery Place (a kids' science museum). Jackson and friend, Noah, cheered on Ricotta and Pepper Jack (the two rats who faced off in Rat Basketball), and then we headed downstairs to the aquarium and playroom. The kids always love riding the train (no carseats!), which made this trip all the more fun.
